I’ve really gotten into Starbound lately so after a couple of rerolls I’m finally satisfied with my “gemsona”. Courtesy of the Gems racial mod for Starbound. Here’s a little story about her.
Facet-4NN3 Cut-P1P is an era 1 Peridot who served under White Diamond. She was an experienced kindergartener and her kindergarten was located on a large meteor coursing around Homeworld’s solar system. She always made sure the newly emerged Peridots and Tektites would be as perfect as herself, until suddenly an abnormally short Tektite crawled out of her hole. Her personality was a little off too. Peridot never had a flawed gem emerge from her kindergarten before, so she never had to go through the unpleasantries to shatter one. She realized she couldn’t bring herself to do it either. She even stubbornly refused to do it.
Threatened to both be shattered for disobeying Homeworld’s law, she and Tektite hitched a ship and got as far away as they could. Nowadays, they have set up shop at a faraway urban planet where they work as mercenaries. Skill and experience made Peridot into a fighter and she enjoys using an assortment of guns, rifles and her trusty bazooka. She has a soft spot for little fuzzy critters however, and dreams of one day opening a pet store once she has enough money to do so. Tektite manages the merc business and comes along for the rides, but she aspires to be a music star, and acts as moral support for Peridot.
(Also, a lil trivia for you: both peridot/olivine and tektite (which is naturally formed glass) can be found inside meteorites. That’s why the kindergarten is on a meteor)
